Cluster Hire in Biology of Behavior:
Two Faculty Positions: Open Rank

Neuron and Network

We are excited to announce two open positions at any rank as part of a planned cluster hire of five positions in the Department of Biology. We invite creative, innovative, dynamic individuals who would like to be part of a strong team to apply for the following tenured/tenure-track faculty positions, which begin fall 2017:

  • A Molecular Neurobiologist who studies mechanisms of neuronal circuits that regulate behaviors. 
  • A Behavioral Geneticist who uses transcriptomic or related “–omics” methods to examine the evolution or regulation of organismal behavior. 

These are the first searches in a planned cluster hire of five positions in the biology of organismal behavior in the next few years. We are searching for creative, collaborative thinkers to join us in taking an integrative and multifaceted approach to revealing the ultimate and proximate causes of behavior.
